unconference banner 2023

This year the Unconference planners will be offering the ABCD world a series of regional &/or topical sessions, hosted and led by local people and all joined together under the Unconference banner! In this way, you can host your whole session in your own language if that’s relevant!

If you would like to host one of these sessions (timing yet to be determined), please indicate your interest below! This will not lock you in but will start the conversation!

Note: you DO NOT need to have a topic, you might just want to host a session for your area, e.g. ABCD in Johannesburg or you might have a topic ready, e.g. ABCD in Higher Education
